Keep on the sunny side. I feel Moore sunny when I get off my computer and get outside.

Hey! Just thought I would drop by to say that you are already making improvements in your life just by joining this place! We are here to support people! Judging by your weightloss tracker you are already down 11 pounds! That's amazing!!

A miscarriage is a hard thing to overcome but think of it as a stepping stone to making you a stronger, better person. In life, if you never had the bad, you would never know what the good is. Stay strong girly :) You can always pm me if needed. I'm one of those weirdo's with my phone on me at all times.

Thank you both so much for the encouragement and support. I truly appreciate it.
I'm definitely trying my hardest to try to get out and stay active, and that's usually not a problem. When I'm working out, I'm totally in the moment and when those endorphin's are running, nothing else matters. I wish I had enough energy to be at the gym 8 hours a day haha.

I'm so sorry to hear you're going through a tough time right now. I've definitely been in similar situations. It's great that you're taking active steps to getting your life on track! It goes to show just how strong a person you are. I found when I was thinking too much about a breakup or any other difficult situation I was dealing with I'd really have to push myself to get active. There's very few things more satisfying than coming back from a really hard run or long walk, my mind was always in a much better place afterwards. Just remember that you're worth the effort!

I'm so sorry to hear about your miscarriage. I'm sure that was a very difficult time for you. If you don't have support at home, you can always find support here. The Spark Community will support you when you need it.

I give all new members one piece of advice and it's this,"Don't look at good health or weight loss with an all or nothing mentality". If the only healthy thing you did for yourself today was drink 8 glasses of water, that's still a step in the right direction.

Start with some simple changes first. Don't try to do everything at once or you will end up frustrated. Do your best to get out of the house. Take a walk. Walking is not only great cardiovascular exercise, it's a great way to reduce stress too. You might want to start blogging or writing in a journal. Writing out your feelings can be very cathartic.

Time heals all wounds, be patient with yourself and your body. And like I said, if you need support, post a thread in one of the forums.

So just a few short weeks ago, I became single (yet again) and decided to take control of my life again. After gaining about 20 lbs of my "happy" weight, I was left alone and heartbroken. I've been trying my hardest to stay focused on myself and my own goals, but it's been such a struggle, and I've lacked moral support from a recent miscarriage.
It's hard to stay positive through this time in my life, but I've been trying to keep busy with any free time I have with going to the gym, although, most of the time, my bed and computer seem a little more friendly.
If there's any advice out there for staying motivated, or getting the heck over this, I would appreciate the input!
